E. 11. AULL, EDITOR.
Tuesday, September 19, 1911.
Hon. W. J. Talbert announces that
lie is going to run for the United
States senate. There is no law against
a man's running. That is a blessed
privilege of our American institutions
'and of our primary system.
There is one thing in Chief Justice
Jones' record which all right-minded
people will agree is to his everlasting
credit and glory-he was at one time
editor of The Newberry Herald, the
immediate predecessor of The Herald
and News-in fact, the same news
paper before The Newberry News unit
ed with it.
The right kind .of public spirit is
rapidly building up Wnitmire. In this
issue our Whitmire correspondent
tells of the raising of $100 among the
pe?ple of the town and the donation
of $400 by Mr. William Colenan for
the purpose of organizing a band for
Whitmire. We believe the future holds
in' store bright and big things for this
progressiCe Newberry cointy town.
nTERESTIN POITICAL SITUA
The political situation in this State
is getting interesting. There will be
a number of as'pirants for the seat on
the supreme court bench. Associate
Justice Gary should be promoted to
chief justice and that would make two
vacancies for associate justice. Then
if two circuit judges are elected the'
will make two vacancies oil the cir
cuit. Then if two solicitors are elect
ed to the circuit judgeship it will make
two vacancies there. So there may be
many wheels within wheels. "You
8ielp me and I will help you" may have
a great deal to do with the results.

FOR BETTER ROADS.
The model S was given another tesi
last week. After taking us to Unior
and back, as related in Friday's paper
I decided to give her another test t'
Columbia. I amt not writing of thest
matters to advertise the model S ol
any one else. Neither do I desire t<
bore the readers of The Herald an<
N'ws. The Model S is not now for sali
My main purpose in going througl
the country was to look over tha
road and endeavor by constantly call
ing attention to it to se if. we coul
not get something done to put the roa
in better condition. There should b
a main boulevard between Newherr
and Columbia and it would pay hot
towns* to cooperate with the autho:
ties in an effort to have such a road
A trip to Columbia by auto would b
a very small mnatteer if the road wa
in such condition as that portion fror
the Broad river bridge into the ciza
or for that matter if it 'were as go.)
Broad river birdge.
I want to say here that when o1:1
man Langford builds a road he builds
a good one. From Chapin d2wn to
Spring Hill he has built a good road
and then he skips about seven mil.
When you leave the good road and
strike where there has been no work
you feel like you have suddenly b01e
transplanted from a highly civilized
community into barbarism. The ap
pearance of the country is entireiv
different. This Spring Hill road fur
nishes a most striking example of the
improvement of the coniitry by the
building of a road. The new road of
course is a little rough but if it is,
given any sort of attention when it z
settled good it will be a fine road. ThE
road bed is there upon which to build.
And it could be done all the way from
Chapin to Columbia.
From Little Mountain to Cha pi: the
road should be relocated neailv all the
way so as to avoid rhe :'aicoad cros
ings and not go pernenDicu1arly up
and down the high hills. If that is
done and the other link built there will
be a fine road from the Lexington line
Of course. Newberry is now building
just such a road to the Lexington line.
We are going to cut out all railroad
crossings and have a beautiful and
perfectly safe road. The distance from
Newberry to Columbia via Spring Hill
is 44 miles.
We came back via Lexington. Had
an elegant breakfast xt the Meetze ho
tel. The road from Columbia to Lex
ington is good, but it seems- that the
sand and clay in some places have not
been mixed in the proper proportion
as the road is working in holes. From
Lexington to the river the road is good
and over the river is a fine steel bridge
and one of the -best pieces of work in
construction of approaches ever done
by a county in this State. The remain
der of the road to Chapin has probably
not been worked in a quarter of a cen
tury and still it is in very good shape.
The distance by this route is 48 miles.
The Spring Hill route is the better
one if that stretch of some seven or
eight miles were put in proper condi
When 'one travels over some of the
roads that have been worked by the
chain gangs of the various counties
and ~sees how the people neglect to
give any .attention to the up-kep, off
the i'oad one is almost f49rced to the
conclusion that the people do not want
improved roads. If the newly worked
road is not given attention it is a
matter of a very skort time before the
last condition of that road is worse
than he Brut.
You will pardon me for saying so
much about the roads but I just can
not help it. A good road is, an evi
dence of intelligence, of progress, of
civilization, of evlerything that stands
for what is best and highest and tru
est. I am for better roads and I am
not a latter day convert.

Francis Wilson, the actor, tells the
following story on John Mason:
Wilson, having spent several sum
mers at a small hotel in Vermont, ad
vised MNason, who was in search of
a quiet place for rest, to go there, tell
ing the proprietor that he waq Wil
son's friend. Mason arrived at the
small town and mado his way to the
inn. He found the proprietor sitting
on the front porch, with his chair tip
ped, smoking a corncob pipe.
"I am 'Mr. Mason," he began. "1
have come here through a friend of
mine, M%r. Francis Wilson."
The landlord, quite unconcerned,
kept on smoking. Thinking he imight
be deaf, the newcomer started again,
somewhat louder, "I am 'Mr. Mason;
I have come here through a friend of
mine, Francis Wilson." Still no re
sponse. Convinced of his deafness,
Mr. 3Mason began once more. "I say,"
he roared, "I am Yr. Mason, and havie
come here througi a friend of mine,
The proprietor Flowly took his pipe
from his mouth and turned to Mason
'What d'you expect me to do, kiss
He wears no simulated smile
At every time and place,
Sometimes you see ior half a m.1ie
The frown upon his face;
He is'nt much on shaking hands,
His manner's sharp and short,
In fact, he scarcely understands
The way to be a sport!
e very seldom buys a drink
Or blows the buncn for smokes;
He seems to want to spend his chink
Upon his wife and folks;
The merry grafters call him "close,"
The lushers say he's "tight;"
They dub him grouchy, sour, morose,
And doubtless they are right!
But when you're broke, and need a
- Why, he's right there, you bet!
He'll stick right with you to the end,
Through trouble, woe and debt;
He'll,swear at you most heartily
(But stake you when you're flat);
It's pretty good, it seems to me,
To have a friend like that!
He loves his children and,his wife
And though his face is grimi,
And though he doesn't grin through
His friends all swear bY' him;
His workers love his very frown;
And for his goodness vouch;
And-well, I'l1 let you put'me down
